Review Drafts and Comments

In accordance with the principles governing IPCC work, the drafts of the SREX and review comments on these drafts available here include:

  • The first-order draft chapters, review comments following the expert review of the first-order drafts, and corresponding author responses
  • The second-order draft chapters, expert and government review comments on the second-order drafts, and corresponding author responses
  • The draft Summary for Policymakers (SPM) distributed with the second-order draft chapters, expert and government review comments on the draft SPM, and corresponding author responses
  • The final SPM draft distributed during the final government distribution and comments received on the SPM

Terms of Access

As part of its commitment to openness and transparency, the IPCC releases drafts that have been submitted for formal expert and/or government review, review comments on these drafts, and author responses to these comments after publication of the associated IPCC Report or Technical Paper. During the multi-stage review process, expert reviewers and governments are invited to comment on the accuracy and completeness of the scientific/technical/socioeconomic content and the overall balance of the drafts. Therefore, review comments and author responses should be considered within the context of the final report. Drafts, review comments, and author responses are pre-decisional materials that are confidential until publication of the final Report or Technical Paper; they are not the results of the assessment and may not be cited, quoted, or distributed as such. Only the approved, adopted, and accepted Reports or Technical Papers may be cited or quoted as the results of the assessment.
